MARSHFIELD, Massachusetts – Police Department of Massachusetts has arrested a 19-year-old man they say threatened to burn down the town and “take out” students at the local high school.
Wednesday night parents called to report the threats made on Instagram by Andrew Lomuscio, a recent Marshfield High School graduate, police say. Officers quickly located him, and he was involuntarily committed for a mental health evaluation.
“Lomuscio threatened to burn down the town of Marshfield and to take out every last Marshfield Ram with a Glock while making shootings gesture with his fingers to his head,” the statement said.
He has been charged with threats to commit a crime, electronic threat to use a firearm to disrupt a school and threats to evacuate or disrupt a school. It could not immediately be determined if he has a lawyer.
He is being held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing.
The Marshfield superintendent has issued a no-trespass order against the man.
